Biochar is a fine-grained, highly porous charcoal that helps soils retain nutrients and water. The carbon in biochar resists degradation and can sequester carbon in soils for hundreds of thousands of years.
Sonoma Biochar Initiative is an educational/advocacy group working with stakeholders to find the exact technologies and the expert learn to help communities convert organic waste to biochar and energy. We connect the dots between bio-energy production, food, health, wast management, and building a vibrant local community and economy.
